MIKE BENTZ Deacon Mike has served as a Grace Church Deacon since 2003, and as Financial Secretary since 1998. He also oversees the buildings and grounds of the Church.  Music has played an important role throughout his life, beginning with clarinet in fourth grade and plummeting to bass clarinet in high school and college. Starting with Church Choir eventually led to a men's quartet mission trip to Romania in 2000. This paved the way for Mike and his wife, Leah, to "adopt" two girls who still live in their homeland. Each one of their four kids, three children-in-law, and two grandkids, are, as Mike and Leah would say, “the apple of my eye!” buildings@gracedupage.org
